Q. Minimal smbfs installation

I am trying to create a boot diskette(s) that is able to mount a remote
drive (on an NT server) using smbfs. 
I have tried doing this, but I can't fit smbd, nmbd, smbmount and smbumount
all onto my root disk.

What is the minimum set of files required for smbfs to work? 
What docs should I read to help me?

I am running RedHat 6.2 (with a custom kernel v 2.2.14, ntfs and network
card support compiled in).

My plan is to boot from the diskettes and back up data from dead NT
workstations to a share on an NT server.

Would I be better off using smbclient? ftp?
